A death in the family... @ 08:30 pm

goblingemini:
I'm currently feelin: sad sad
I'm currently hearin: A Sort of Homecoming

Let us all bow our heads and acknowledge the loss I have suffered tonight.

As I was shifting some videotapes that were stacked on top of my television, my VHS of ZooTV Sydney slipped and fell about four feet onto my tiled living room floor - and shattered. I've had that tape for about six years, and have easily watched it over one-thousand times. The sound and video quality were actually turning to shit, so maybe I needed a new one anyway, but a piece of my U2-fandom-history is now broken. Rest In Peace, Zoo Sydney. I loved you.

*goes immediately to Amazon and orders a new one*

None of the above, actually ... Since only about three pieces of the cassette broke off, I was able to tape the tape (heh) back together, and replace it inside its frayed, faded box. I'm going to keep it. I don't think I could ever bring myself to throw away any piece of U2 memorabilia. I'm a collector.

that's where having a brother who is a u2 fan comes in handy, there's 2 copies of zootv on vhs in our house. Maybe we should buy another, just in case

Shouldn't it be "rest in pieces?" *g*

In all seriousness, thank the heavens for Ebay, Half.com and Amazon.com. May they continue to be a U2-fan's greatest resources.
